How do you or where do you have your parfum?
Re: How do you or where do you have your parfum?
...MartaFrostI have a poblem to find a perfect glas cabinet for my bottles. I will like to se your photos, please to get ideas.I have no picture. A small wood cabinet with doors 1.50 tall 85 cm wide house my fragrances, makeup, toiletries, empty perfume bottles I collect the pretty ones. Full sizes keep in boxes. Samples I have the newer ones in empty cookie tins. Older samples I keep in a little cardboard box with lid. It is dark and cool and things keep well. I think about glass display but sunlight is not good for perfumes. On my night table have few nearly empty bottles and samples with few drops, for bed time use.

Blind Buys - Are you a risk taker? Best + Worst Experiences
...cItypark:For me it is not necessarily an urge to blind buy but a "necessity" when one can not test the perfumes. Many perfumes I am interested in are not in perfume shops, yes I could order samples, but when in the EU it is annoying with all the regulations and extra taxes and not all online sellers ship to here... So, I actually bought many bottles blind.Same here. Lately I blind buy ZARA perfumes.
Idle chit chat: what's the weather like where you live

House of Miro
...From the time I still used to be able to go shopping one of the last inexpensive sets I bought was Paradise - Miro. Just this week I was shopping online at Parfumdreams.de and see that Miro had new scents but under same names and different shape bottle in 50 ml instead of the 75 ml. There are still bottles of 75 ml sold at site. Since I am homebound does anyone have any of the scents and which do you like/prefer?
What are you waiting for in the mail right now?
...Received in mail this week 6 samples from Histoires de Parfum the 3 tubereuses , blanc violette, 1826 and ambre 114. I think on my to buy list goes tubereuse 3 for autumn/fall.Also in mail 5 re-buy samples from Atelier Cologne.
Do you keep your samples?
...Yes I keep my samples. I can never buy all the perfumes I like so samples are a way to wear a perfume a few times and enjoy it. I never went to buy a full size from a sample. I am mostly home so my full sizes are mostly sort of daily wear fragrances. I also like miniatures and travel sizes if I can buy them. I also like to buy samples sets straight from the perfume houses.
List of old perfume houses ?
...Late last night I was google searching for the old perfume houses for a list of them. I found a few sites but they seem incomplete. I am looking for lists that mention both the long gone old perfume houses, the houses that were bought up by mayor companies like P&G , L'Oreal ,etc and the list of still existing old perfume houses. Maybe there is a more complete list somewhere?
